[SECURITY] [DLA 1277-1] audacity security update

Package        : audacity
Version        : 2.0.1-1+deb7u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-2540

Chris Navarrete from Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs discovered that Audacity,
a multi-track audio editor, contains a vulnerability such that a .wav
file with a crafted FORMATCHUNK structure (many channels) can result in
a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash).

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your audacity packages.
